The weekend was upon us and that means two things for Tall and me get out and about or vegetate and couch. The sun encouraged us to be more mobile but I could already feel an outfit crisis crushing the sunny motivation. In my very dramatic tone that I reserve for extreme attention seeking tactics I announced to Mr. Tall “I have NOTHINGGGGG to wear”. (Start with a deep low voice, peak at “NOTHING” stretch the word for emphasis and then drop the voice again).
It almost always works but four years and four closets later his very flat non enthusiastic reply was “Tell me something new”. I would have pursued other tactical voice notes had it not been for the word “new”. It’s like I knew new from somewhere. Like we had met and then forgotten to exchange numbers, New… New!? ……….NEWWWWW!!!!
Of course we had met, in fact I had brought New home and it was hanging in my closet dying a little everyday in hope of some acknowledgement. So I climbed on to the stool that gives me the leverage a five feet something needs and pulled new out from the depths of my closet.
After carefully cutting and stashing the tags away to avoid a “ I told you so” moment with Tall, I decided to justify the very word that convinced me and my credit card to bring New home.The word was “Versatile”. Actually there were two words, versatile and affordable. Here is how I styled New in six different ways with some help from my relatively older and faithful wardrobe investments.
I am sure if you climb high and dig deep you will find one such forgotten “New” in your closet. Enjoy the show, shop the looks from the links I have shared below the slider. However, don’t forget to practice tactical persuasive tones, remember.. .Deep, PEAK, Drop.
